The license plate features a reproduction of an iconic original Snoopy drawing by Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz and the phrase "museums are for everyone."

Smoke alarms have become such a common feature in U.S. homes that they are often taken for granted and aren't tested or maintained as they should be.

Indeed, many new desalination plants have been proposed along the California coast and a number of them are already in operation, such as in Monterey and Carlsbad. While desalination may be a reliable option, the answer is much more complicated.
